Tony Parker leaves Spurs-Thunder game with tight Achilles


The Spurs are peaking at the right time.

As the playoffs approach, San Antonio again looks like a strong championship contender. Tonight’s romp over the Thunder only reinforces that perception.

But health is always a concern for an aging team (yes, even the Spurs), and there’s reason to at least keep an eye on Tony Parker.

Parker left late in the first half, and the Spurs led, 63-41, at halftime. They also play the Rockets tomorrow.

Hopefully, this is mostly precautionary.
